We endorse Arlyn Uhrmacher as the Southeast Community College Board of Governors District 5 representative. We have known Arlyn for 50 years. He is dedicated, knowledgeable, honest and a true advocate for public education.
As a lifelong and passionate educator, he knows that a quality education resulting in an employable skill set is the key for success in life.
Since the primary, he has toured all three SCC campuses, met with staff and students and demonstrated the kind of board member he will be. By attending Governing Board meetings, he has gained knowledge of the budget process, building updates and quality improvement efforts being made at the college.
We strongly support Arlyn because he is the candidate with vocational experience. He understands the educational needs of young adults and will advocate for them.
Arlyn has worked with SCC and the community in developing agreements that provide enhanced educational opportunities for high school students. His strong connections with the schools will make him a more effective board member.
Arlyn is the only candidate with workforce development experience, having served on the Greater Lincoln Workforce Investment Board as chairperson of the Youth Council. The council worked with local agencies in Lancaster and Saunders counties to provide job training for at risk or skill deficient youth so they could be successfully employed.
These qualities make Arlyn the clear choice for the District 5 seat. Please join us in supporting and voting for Arlyn Uhrmacher for SCC Board on Nov. 6.
Jim and Beth Otto, Lincoln
